Would it be uncool of me, the honkiest honky that ever dared to honky, to work Dia de los Muertos into a story? The main character is of Mexican ancestry. She becomes undead, because this is my writing, and she starts to wear a traditional-looking skull mask to hide her decay. (Other stuff happens, but the story’s still in early stages, so I don’t know what that stuff is yet.)
I’d be as sensitive as possible, and I’ll do more research before I get into things. All I know is that when I Googled Dia de los Muertos for reference, the amount of white people in the in the face makeup felt awfully appropriate-y. I don’t want to be a douche canoe.
is that you hobby lobby
Am I the only one that’s a just a tiny bit pissed off that this is still an issue?

Persephone as a dark and off-putting goddess who worries her mother by hanging out with satyrs and making weird stuff like pitcher plants and Venus flytraps. Hades being charmed and intimidated all at once.
If thst ever make a movie of the Persephone myth, Aubrey Plaza should play her.
